Multiple Teams Interested In JaVale McGee

10:06pm: Teams that are still interested in signing McGee also include the Rockets, Raptors, and Heat, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports tweets.

FRIDAY, 8:48pm: The Mavericks are still interested in McGee, but other teams that could offer the big man more playing time could be more appealing, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News writes. Dallas is unable to offer McGee more than a minimum salary contract for the remainder of the season, Sefko adds.

11:48am: There’s “no way” the Raptors would cross the $76.829MM tax line to sign McGee in spite of GM Masai Ujiri‘s affection for him, tweets Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun. The Raptors have a team salary for tax purposes of $76.096MM, as I pointed out earlier. A prorated minimum-salary contract until season’s end for McGee would only cost the team $231,503 if he signed today, after he clears waivers at 4pm Central time, so presumably the club can still bring him in and avoid the tax. So it follows that the Raptors won’t engage in a bidding war, Wolstat adds (on Twitter). However, the Raptors may be closer to the tax line than it appears based on incentive clauses in player contracts, which aren’t always fully reported.

WEDNESDAY, 10:10am: The Raptors are thinking about pursuing McGee, Stein tweets.

5:27pm: The Warriors have expressed major interest in McGee, and view him as an insurance policy for Andrew Bogut, Chris Broussard of reports (Twitter link).

TUESDAY, 3:59pm: The Mavericks are “seriously interested” in JaVale McGee, sources tell Marc Stein of, but the sense is he won’t rush to choose a team should he clear waivers as expected on Wednesday, Stein adds (Twitter links). Plenty of other teams are interested, Stein notes, echoing a Monday report from Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports indicating that no less than 10 teams are in the mix. It’s nonetheless somewhat surprising to see Dallas emerge as one of them, since the Mavs earlier today committed their final open roster spot to a contract through season’s end Bernard James.

The teams that are in the mix for McGee reportedly envision him as a third-string center and won’t offer the big man more than the league minimum to sign. The Heat are among those interested in the oft-injured veteran, Stein tweets. While the remainder of the teams considering making a run at McGee are not yet known, the Wizards are not one of them, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post notes.

The 27-year-old appeared in just seven contests for the Sixers after being acquired from Denver, averaging 3.0 points and 2.2 rebounds in 10.2 minutes per contest. In 382 career games McGee has averaged 8.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.8 blocks. His career slash line is .540/.200/.587.

    The spurs should consider signing him he is a huge upgrade from tiago splitter his a decent rim protector and plays down low pretty well hopefully he can give our bench that much energy as well yes he is a hard head but he is a think twice before you drive it inside duncan, and mcgee damn come on spurs pull the triger..

    The spurs should consider signing him he is a huge upgrade to tiago splitter. With arron baynes on the rise tiago splitter playing time have decreased javale mcgee should come off the bench i can see him sparking up the bench and giving our second unit a decent rim protector..sure he has some issues but if anyone can make a player show their true identity it would have to be pop..and sadly to say tiago splitter its been real but not many big man like javale are as athletic as he is! Pull the triger spurs

    What is wrong with Philly? There’s no reason to waive him. He’s got another year left, freaking play him and get something for him, not pay him to play somewhere else.

    • Z....

      especially b/c he just wants to play and said as recently as a few days ago, on the radio, that he doesnt want to go to a situation, even if its a winning situation, where he doesnt play. That at his age, he just wants to play basketball, and he doesnt need to be anywhere else right now

      • boston2az

        That’s exactly what he was offered in Boston. He’s ALSO interested in only committing to the rest of the year, then shopping himself again. So he’s really using the team he signs with as a staging area.

    He would be a real nice pickup for the raptors
